Thank you, AnastasiaEvidence!

I'm confusing Olga and Maria, now that's alarming.
The last picture (of Anastasia and Alexei) was your work, I believe?


EDIT: Great job, yet again.
The picture of OTMA (in front of the ship) is wonderful: you can really see how close those sisters were.

Yes, the last photo of Anastasia and Alexei is mine. The person who downloaded the picture on imageshack cropped it.

Thanks for your friendship, and comments, Marsel!That photo of the four girls hugging each other is so cute. It shows how close they really were as sisters.

I've downloaded the picture to Imageshack but the cropping is not my work: I found the picture on Google (and remembered it from here - I've done a very extensive search on the OTMAA today).
Some of the colouring and background details appear to be changed as well: your original work looks better, in my opinion.

Thanks,SilverStar! I can post the list of steps for coloring photos here, if you want. I got some special techniques that I'm keeping a secret as. I'm using Adobe Photoshop.
Do you want to download adobe photoshop and try coloring pictures? I can send you my instructions. I can also post it all here !

It's probably a better option to start a thread in Members' Corner for discussion of the technical side of colourising photos.

Thanks! I also notice the difference between the two photos. In the cropped version it looks like someone retouched the photo and made it lighter and appear as if it waas their own. You can still tell that the photo is mine anyway.
I've also seen many of my colourized photos on google. The cropped version must have came from tinypic. Someone downloaded it from here and cropped it.
Alexei and Anastasia This was my original colourized version of the photo.

Amazing pictures, they are such darlings in those pictures (:
But I especially like the one of Tatiana, I think that is my favorite picture of her ever! (:

The one with Ella is just SO good. It just really shows hw much they like each other.
I also like the OTMAA one, it is quite similar to this one Elisabeth gabriel and emmanuel image by soprtsmad on Photobucket, of the Elisabeth, Gabriel and Emmanuel of Belgium (:

I agree, Zelia. That photo of the three children is so adorable. It does look similar to the photo of OTMAA. It's so cute how they where standing up on each other like that. They really were friends and great siblings.
